It's been nearly 13 years and 4chan still holds some influence over the Internet. In the last year alone 4chan caused an entire movement about corruption in video games or some shit and spawned Pepe, possibly the most prominent meme this turn of the millennium.
For just how long will 4chan continue to influence Internet culture?
I have been thinking. Is one of the fundamental problems with 4chan is that too many people end up spending too much time on here, like at least daily visits and posts? After all, the website began with a small fraction of the current number of boards and they covered much less niches. I am sure other boards came to be as people visited very often and would discuss niche subjects on /b/ (I have heard that this is where proto-/co/ was). This is conjecture because I have only been going on here relatively recently, where most of today's boards already existed.

I think you're right. The majority of the community LIVES on this fucking site, which is why you see people talking about "home boards" and other such bullshit and perceiving anyone who behaves differently from desired to be "not from this site." Like you said, the generals are a good example of it. This straight up obsessive behavior needs to stop, but it can only stop if the mods do something about it.
Definitely in the old days you just couldn't stay online for that long. There simply wasn't enough around online. I personally watched more TV and played more console games in that era.
Today, people are watching twitch streams and youtube videos and contact each other outside the chan - steam and whatnot. And you can tell that the pathological losers that plague the site are just constantly here. They can't seem to fulfil themselves any other way and opt to just live here, exhausting themselves with repetitious... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've never understood why people are actually AGAINST the left on this site. Like, I literally never see any explanation. Just someone that yells FUCK YOU LEFTIE SCUM any time a particularly reasonable post is made.
I'd be open to hearing an explanation, though I suspect there isn't actually one.
Lately, there's been a number of touhou-themed threads moved from /v/ onto /jp/. As you may know, /v/ users are by and large facebook-tier normalfags brought onto 4chan because of totally epic /b/ screencaps that get a million likes/upvotes/whatever on social network sites, mixed in with /a/ rejects (in order to be rejected from /a/, you really have to scrape the bottom of the barrel).
Now here's a question for you /questions and answer/, why is it a bannable offence to tell these aforementioned facebookees to go back to thier homeboard? A containment board... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Glad they're banning for this. This confirmation that it's not just about reddit, you can also get banned for "go back to such and such board" boogeyman shitposting. The mods are being more consistent and I respect that.
I also think you should have been banned for spelling their wrong. Can't even shitpost with good spelling, who the fuck do you think you are?
It's funnier that people think /qa/ will be deleted. They see a thread they don't like, think to themselves "Oh shit" then out loud they say SEE THIS IS WHY /qa/ NEEDS TO BE DELETED. Because they want to hide from the truth.
If history is an indicator some fans move on and some remain fans until death.
They likely will cool off on that one fandom however and move on to other things, but that doesn't mean that always happens or that they are now officially not fans of their prior interest, unless they specifically had some kind of concrete falling-out with them. It just sent dormant for whatever reason.
One example I can think of are original Star Trek fans.. Besides the JJ Abrams movies, they probably mostly lie dormant about that unless you specifically dragged it out in conversation.
